. >>> chris matthews is up next. >>> tonight we bring to you my interview with president obama. i have covered two great world events in my career. one was the fall of the berlin wall in 1989. the other was the first democratic election in south africa five years later. i was there when the country's black majority voted by the millions, waiting in lines that stretched from one horizon to the other. i saw first hand the devotion to democracy. it was the great legacy of the man who died today. president obama paid tribute to nelson mandela today. through his fierce dignity and unbending will to sacrifice his own freedom for the freedom of others i moved all of us. he embodied the promise that human beings and countries can change for the better. his commitment to transfer power and reconcile those who jailed him set an example for all to aspire to, whether in the lives of nations or in our own personal lives. >>> i promised you the president of the united states. and he's here. let's play "hardball." >> it's my honor to introduce the president of the united states.

state lines and lots of things. the reason young people have rejected obama care is really quite simple. this is a generation that has grown up in a world that works characterized by google, ebay, twitter, facebook and all of the apps and it's all tailored to them and it has worked. president obama has become a representative and emblematic as the obama care failure offer conformity which is the iron plan, the tin plan and the rust plan and it doesn't work, and this is a generation that doesn't tolerate things that don't work. what he is suffering now is a wholesale rejection of the plan and it's a little like blackberry. this is a generation that said we don't like blackberry more and we don't like the iphone and it's tailored to what we do and obama is unfortunately, i think, suffered this wholesale rejection of his brand. not only was it false advertising. go ahead. >> i was going say, aisha yesterday, he was going to be with chris matthews at american university today. how does he turn it around? how does he win them back because they loved him in his two elections. >> i just want t
